TMJ stands for Temporomandibular Joint. This is the jaw joint that is utilized for chewing, eating and speaking. Bruxism, or teeth grinding, can occur throughout life and may lead to symptoms of Temporomandibular Disorder (TMD).
These symptoms include:
- Trouble opening the mouth
- Pain in your face and temples
- Trouble chewing, speaking and swallowing
If you experience any of the conditions associated with TMD, the dentists at Ray Dental Group may be able to help relieve these symptoms and guide you back to a painless normal functioning mouth.
